Air Conditioning for Chartering a Catamaran in San Blas, Panama: is it Worth it?

It is definitely recommended yearound if any in your group is sensitive to heat or if you are sailing during the summer (between April and December).


Air conditioning enabled catamarans require extensive maintenance in order to keep the systems up and running without any issues. Sailing the most remote location of the Caribbean such as the San Blas islands makes this a task only to be accomplished by dedicated, professional and knowledgeable captains.


Due to the fact described above, there are simply not many catamarans in San Blas that offer air conditioning and at the moment we can only offer our Salina 48 and our Leopard 50 as our only options, so make sure you book in advance any of these catamarans because they are the most requested of our fleet and their availability is often greatly reduced.


A/c will usually be run for the night so that guests can sleep with comfort and be ready for their San Blas sailing and adventure the next day. A well maintained ac will not only cool your cabin but also get rid of the moisture and humidity thus doubling the benefits in the hot tropical weather of the San Blas islands.
